Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

No, once the APNs certificate has got expired, Hexnode will no longer be able to manage the Apple devices. The certificate is required to send the push notifications from the MDM server to the devices.
If the APNs certificate has expired, you will need to re-enroll the devices after renewing or creating a new certificate. If you renew the certificate before expiry, Hexnode will continue to manage the devices without any issue.

Check out the help doc on creating/renewing an APNs certificate for more info.
